The key moments from the Vodacom Super Rugby match between the Bulls and Lions at Loftus, according to SIMON BORCHARDT.
5th minute – Jacques-Louis Potgieter kicks in behind the Lions' defence. JJ Engelbrecht and Jan Serfontein try to collect the ball but knock it forward.
13th minute – With the Bulls leading 6-0 after two Potgieter penalties, Stefan Watermeyer charges down Jürgen Visser's clearance kick and scores a try that edges the Lions in front.
24th minute – The Bulls counter-attack from inside their half with Engelbrecht putting Bjorn Basson into space. He breaks away down the left touchline before passing back inside to Serfontein, whose try makes it 13-7.
40th minute – With the Bulls leading 19-10 and time up in the first half, Marnitz Boshoff misses his first goal kick of the season when his penalty hits an upright.
74th minute – Potgieter kicks his fifth penalty to give the Bulls a 15-point lead, which means Willie Wepener's subsequent try for the Lions is just a consolation.
